Located within the park of Castrelos of Vigo (Pontevedra) which the river Lagares runs through, this ancestral home is today a museum and a public park, just as its last owner, D.Fernando Quiñones de León, Marquis of Alcedo, wished on donating it.
It was him and his wife, the VIII Marchioness of Valladares, who at the end of the XIX Century decided to reform the old ancestral home, trusting the transformation of the surrounding orchards to a well known gardening firm from Oporto.
Many different styles are to be seen in the garden, which is on three levels and has a copse. It is representative of various European gardens of that period.
Beginning with the upper level is The Rose Garden, a walk which looks over the rest of the garden. All the different varieties of roses were exhibited on metallic arches. Stone busts, sculptures and a pavilion that used to be a greenhouse complete it.
